The FCT Commissioner of Police (CP) Muhammed Mustafa has warned people planning to protest in Abuja to notify the Command before embarking on such protest.
Mustafa who spoke on Friday at a press conference at the Command Headquarters in Abuja, said the warning follows reports making the rounds on the social media of a planned nationwide protest slated for 6th February, 2017.
He said “the Command wants to advise the conveners of such to jettison any plan to carry out the protest on the streets of Abuja as it is capable of breaching the peaceful atmosphere.”
“the conveners of the protest are also enjoined to adopt legal and legitimate means to register their protest instead of taking over the streets of the FCT.”
He said the command would not watch criminal elements hide under the guise of such protest to cause breakdown of law and order.
